Mediawiki is tough to beat for a standalone wiki, but now that you are
adding more stuff:

Have you looked at Drupal? I just installed it on a web server
yesterday. Like Wikipedia, it is a set of PHP scripts that accesses a
database. It is probably the most popular open source content
management system behind Mambo. It does have a wiki module available,
but that would probably be unecessary given its node architecture.
Users can submit pages, they can have blogs, they can collaborate on
books, they can post to forums, etc... There is even a module that
will submit a site index to Google when the site is updated (or that
can just be used to create the site index and serve it when web
spiders show up).
